Fake: These images of cars burning are not from the Delhi mayhem of Jan 26

|

New Delhi, Jan 28: Delhi witnessed mayhem on Republic Day, when the farmers taking out a tractor parade deviated from the agreed route and entered the national capital.

One person was killed in the violence whereas 17 government vehicles were damaged and 300 barricades were broken.

Fake: These images of cars burning are not the Delhi mayhem on Jan 26

Now images are circulating on social media with pictures of cars on fire. The caption reads, 'latest images from Delhi."

Fake: Yogi govt has not ordered closing down of Madrasas that don’t celebrate Republic Day

When we did a reverse image search, we found that the claims on the social media are misleading. The images, both which are credited to PTI are from an incident in Jammu in 2019. These were the protests that broke out in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack in which 40 CRPF jawans were martyred. The images were shot during a shutdown call given by the Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Jammu on February 15 2019.

Hence the images in circulation are from Jammu, but are in no way related to the Delhi mayhem.
